Once LouiseM receives the necessary information (from a thorough interview process), she molds the structure and the rhythm of the piece, for example, deciding whether or not the piece will take on a central form, or rather, a chopped, or even a melted, style. From here, she drawsthe outline and upon its completion, she refines the concept by filling in the details. Still drawing from the interview data, she cherrypicks the different elements that best characterize her client, choosing details that often include but are not limited to: major life events, travels, passions, habits, holidays, restaurants frequented, and so on. Always and above all, LouiseM’s objective is to remain as faithful as possible to the description as given during the interview process.
To ensure top quality in this regard, she dedicates 150 hours or more to each piece, maintaining direct contact with her client throughout. At its completion, the painting then takes on a new life of its own, becoming both a unique decoration and an independent graphic in its own right, one that tells a story or illustrates an event, a work of art that yields an emotion and that belongs both to the past gone, to the present now, and to the future unknown.
